North Spokane Library, 44 E. Hawthorne, will be closed on Friday, April 11, 2014 for the preparation of the exhibit Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression. The exhibit opens to the public on Saturday, April 12, running through June 30, with a selection of corresponding programs at many of the Spokane County Libraries.

Washington State has seen its share of hard times, from the Great Depression, to the challenges of today. Uncomfortable economics have always forced people to get creative, finding ways to maintain quality of life in the midst of difficulty. To celebrate the brave and ingenious people of the Great Depression and the present, Spokane County Library District is hosting Hope in Hard Times: Washington During the Great Depression, a traveling exhibit curated by Humanities Washington.

The Library District also presents a selection of programs: from hands-on ideas for making the most of your resources to conversations about the people behind the statistics of unemployment and hardship during the Great Depression. Whatever your interest, we think you’ll find a little hope with your name on it.
